(JL98-100 points) You have to like your grapes poured over a rock quarry to get this wine, but I love it. The color of Homer’s wine dark sea with levels of extract that coat your palate, teeth and gums. There is something special here you can easily sense, with crushed velvet textures and the perfect combination of decadence and refined elegance. Even though this is incredibly powerful, everything is in harmony. The pure fruits linger, build and expand; this is a unique textural experience. The wine was produced from blending 82% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot was harvested October 7 to October 21, the Cabernet Franc, October 17 to October 20 and the Cabernet Sauvignon on October 20. The wine reached 14.4% alcohol with a pH of 3.35.

The 2016 Pavie Macquin is a total stunner. Rich, lush and inviting, the 2016 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty.

Rich, lush and inviting, the 2016 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, lavender and mint are all given an extra kick of allure by silky tannins that caress the palate from start to finish. There is a level of precision and nuance here that is simply breathtaking. The purity of the fruit is just mind-boggling. -- Antonio Galloni

This is very linear and driven with a precise and driven center palate. Full-bodied, tight and compact. Energetic and well formed. Give it at least five years. Try from 2024.

The long, refined finish has a gorgeous yin-yang between cashmere and chalky threads. — J.M.

(WE95-97 points) Fragrant, perfumed and juicy, this is already an attractive wine, though one that has the stuffing to cellar well for many years. The structure is striking and solidly firm.

The structure is striking and solidly firm. It will be an elegant wine with opulent tendencies.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Pavie Macquin charges out of the glass with gregarious black cherries, warm blackberries and wild blueberries scents followed up by loads of red roses, baking spices, cedar chest and unsmoked cigars sparks plus a waft of wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in poise, revealing layer upon layer of cherries and berries flavors and tons of savory nuances, framed by firm yet exquisitely ripe tannins, finishing very long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The... The 2016 Pavie Maquin, matured in 50% new oak, has a rich, opulent bouquet that doles out layers of black cherry and boysenberry fruit, then finds more refinement and draws everything back once you’ve been seduced. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, grippy in the mouth, with a masculine, minerally finish and a saline aftertaste. Comparing two bottles, one at the London UGC and one at the château, I found that the latter displayed more detail and nuance. 14.5% alcohol. -- Neal Martin
